Film: HOW TO CHANGE THE WORLD
In 1971 a small group of activists set sail from Vancouver, Canada in an old fishing boat. Their mission was to stop Nixons atomic test bomb in Amchitka, Alaska. Chronicling this untold story at the birth of the modern environmental movement and with access to dramatic archive footage unseen for over 40 years, HOW TO CHANGE THE WORLD centres on eco-hero Robert Hunter and his part in the creation of the global organization we now know as Greenpeace.
Alongside a group of like-minded and idealistic young friends in the 70s, Hunter would be instrumental in altering the way we look at the world and our place within it. These early pioneers captured their daring and sometimes jaw-dropping actions on film and from this director Jerry Rothwell has made a thrilling, sometimes terrifying film.
Follow by a Q&A with Peter Wilcox, a Captain for Greenpeace for over 30 yearsthe most experienced captain in the organization. He has led the most compelling and dangerous Greenpeace actions to bring international attention to the destruction of our environment. He will be signing copies of his new book, GREENPEACE CAPTAIN: My Adventures in Protecting the Future of Our Planet
